    For some reason I thought you were in El Paso!! I was looking forward to seeing stuff from there.

    That's ok. It's still an awesome picture. No strikes against you! I'm not a normal Europe person. Is it common for the PO's to not have names on them? I do know that some here in the US don't.
    I just find it more amusing if it has a name on it. I

    No they don’t have names and other than this HQ one…the rest are pretty unimpressive! Thanks!

    I can't see it, but I've been to enough PO's to know that there is a good chance it is in that location!

    See. I'm easy to please. I think these NYC PO's are pretty cool.

    Reston post office, inside the lobby. Nothing on the outside of the building to identify it as the "Reston" PO. Riding late at night provided the advantage of being able to bring my bike into the lobby!

    Default Toluca Lake

    From my ride yesterday with the LA Wheelmen. Most of the LA PO's I've seen look more or less like this. I'll need to do some exploring to see if there are more interesting ones.

    Here's a picture of the very first PO in Toluca Lake from 1892;

    And the country's oldest Big Boy (which I rode past yesterday) is located in Toluca Lake:

    Clarification question: The rules say one post per day. Does that mean posting once per calendar-day or one post per ride-day. I.e., I took pics of POs on both Jan 1 and Jan 2, different rides. Do I post them both? Or is this one posted on Jan 3 (taken on Jan 2) the only one I can submit for the year so far?

    Good question. For the leaderboard, it's limited to one post office per day no matter how many rides you do that day. If you don't ride one day, you can't post two rides another day to make up for it.
    For purposes of posting to the thread, I don't care what day you post the picture. Posting pictures from your Jan 1 and Jan 2 rides could be done on the same day. You really aren't required to post your picture to the thread.
    I just enjoy seeing some of the different Post Offices. I'm also still trying to figure out how I'll keep track of possible bonus points for some of the more interesting pictures.
